Whortleberries!

 
I think I shall make jam.  If I don't just eat them. 
 
Sadly, it seems to be a terrible year for rowans: I know it's too early for them to be ripe, but none of the blossoms on the trees where I normally pick rowan berries seem to have set this year. Perhaps it was the dry spring?

those look DIVINE. in fact, not only do they look divine but they also look like a variant on huckleberries. Mmmmmm. I could use some huckleberries right about now.

I say skip the jam and roll them up in a crepe.

I have to admit, I never knew the huckleberry was actually ... you know a berry. Which sounds utterly daft now I write it down :-D, but I've only ever come across the word in the context of Huckleberry Finn.

Google thinks it's a close relation of the whortleberry.

I did make jam, but not before I'd eaten quite a lot of berries! YUM.

actually, this is really sad and I shouldn't be admitting it in public but here goes: until you mentioned the "close" relationship between huckleberries (the berry) and Huckleberry Finn (the book) I had never actually consciously noticed his first name before. Like, AT ALL.

I have shamed my country of origin.

Also, they are delicious in pancakes. If you Brits eat that sort of thing. I have been told you eat lots of kidneys and things :D

:-D your dark secret uncovered.

I certainly eat pancakes though I haven't put whortleberries inside one previously, I intend to remedy this situation TOMORROW.

I don't think I know anyone who eats kidneys. Ew! I'll eat liver, but draw the line at recognisable organs!

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
